    Does anyone know how difficult making this run under Mono
    would be?

    There is significant interest in this.
    I want to add my voice in requesting this possibility.

    I dont think that mono supports the .net framework does
    it??? sry dont know much about mono, im a windows user :-
    b but also does it support managed directx????

    tomd123: The goal of Mono is to implement precisely the .NET
    Framework API. While Mono is not (yet) 100% compatible, it's
    pretty good. (Check out <a

    As for the DirectX calls, I believe those will have to be
    translated to OpenGL. (I do not believe the fact that it is
    managed code should make a difference.)

    For random Unics (Linux, *BSD), oh yes, please.
    Hm, is it possible to compile this NASA World Wind Sourcecode
    with gcc and OpenGlide and mono?

    hi, I would just like to add that I was also about to
    request a multi platform version of worldwind, so that it
    works also for non-Win32 OS, so please consider this a vote ;-)

    Applications like Worldwind or Google earth
    must run on Linux/Unix/OS-X/Windows

    This should be considered "state of the art".

    Our "not as popular project"
    does so.

    Yes, that would be really great!
    And as it is OSS that should not be a huge problem...

    But it's better than G**gle Earth anyway!! ;-P

    i want to run this in linux, please do provide a OpenGL/Mono

    Mono is not a way to port windows programs to linux!

    Mono is to run clx programs (written in c# and friends).

    What the project needs is a port from DirectX to opengl.

    If you want it to run on windows right now. It'll probably
    run with http://www.transgaming.com/ but you have to pay for
    that software.

    I'm about to try it with pure wine... http://www.winehq.com/
    (not expecting too much though).

    Also I'm running with AMD64 archecture. I don't know why I'm
    bothering to download it even :)

    Forgive my last stupid comment. Better still delete it.

    I didn't even bother to check that this is .net :P

    Port to linux/mono would be hard...

    It's been over a year now since the release of the windows
    only version. Could we move on and create a linux one please?
    I don't care if we have to begin from scratch, the windows
    version took less than a year, right?
    Meanwhile google released a linux version, if they
    understood, why can't nasa?
    Instead of stalling space shuttle launches, get real and do
    something usefull for a change.

    I agree with the previous posters. I would really like to see
    a Linux/*BSD version. I'm on MacOS X right now -- a MacOS X
    native version would be nice, but, for now, I would settle
    for a BSD/X/OpenGL version. And, since my other computer
    is a Linux box, I still really would like the Linux version.
